No Bonneville body for it.. closest thing is GP ( Bleh ) and 300M. . haven't had the time to get back into it. Sold an aluminum ( every aftermarket aluminum pruple piece ) for my HPI Pro 2, Sold NRS4 2, Had ClodBuster, Blitzer Beetle, Started wtih Tamiya BlackFoot ( God bless the classic ), had Associated RC 10T3, and Losi XXT. Still have Yokomo MR4TC, and RC 10L3 kickin around collecting dust along with Cyclone Speed Controller, KO PROPO Presto Controller, a few other mods and goodies. I haven't been into it since 2 summers ago. Wouldn't mind gettin back into it.. but don't have enough $$ to support full scale car hobbies and R/C car hobbies. .. at least not yet.. Wouldn't mind gettin back into it.

As for custom makin one. That'* been tinkering in my mind in the back burner.. get someone ( bugged Jim ) to draw it out on AutoCad with all the dimension.. shrink it down to 190mm or 200mm .. cut it out on CnC Mill on Foam.. and take that into a plasitc shop that can vacuum form polycarbonate to it.. but again.. that'* also on the back burner. :(

I got a HPI RS4 2 with an OS CV-X .15.

It hauls very nicely.

I've got an Audi TT, Mustang Saleen, and a Ram AIR body for it.

No Bonnevilles, I've searched too.

Hopefully I start racing it again this weekend. I had it out for a test run last weekend. Worked perfectly, cept it was too fast. lol

Ha ha.. nice.. should go after the Nova Rossi .12 HPI carries them now too under their name. Did you get the 2 speed tranny with it? If so make sure you invest in a tranny brace or it'll chew up your spur gears. Got pics? The OS .15 is one of the only mills in a .12 block whereas others are usually closer or is a .21 block just not bored out that big.

Got an HPI RS4 Brand new in the Box not even the seals have been cut yet. Never got around to building it even with a brand new radio for it! But used to have an Associated T3 with all the carbon fiber/aluminum parts you could buy. And also had a Tamiya Blackfoot. But when the R/C parts cost as much as a real car part, hard for me to justify spending on the R/C car.

I know that feeling.. but love to see those things go race Civics down my street in my old place in Mississauga before. the funny part is that would always kick their ***.. hahaha. The T3 is much better then the Losi XXT in my opinion. As soon as I win the lottery.. I"ll get back into it.
